Tacoma Dome

Over the past year, in coordination with the Federal Transit Administration, Sound Transit has worked with partner agencies, local stakeholders and the public to consider and further refine route and station alternatives. The alternatives development process for this project consists of two evaluation phases, where the most promising alternatives at each level have been carried forward to be studied in greater detail based on technical analysis, community feedback, and recommendations from the Elected Leadership Group.

For your review and comment, the information below illustrates all route and station alternatives and summarizes the findings of the second technical evaluation phase and is provided to help compare light rail segment alternatives to each other. No decisions have been made yet about which alternatives will continue forward into the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). We want to hear from you!

Using the pink boxes, choose the station area you want to explore. Feel free to review and comment on the alternatives in each station area: South Federal Way, Fife, East Tacoma and Tacoma Dome!

On each station area page, you can:

  • View the map for an individual alternative by clicking the corresponding check box in the key.
  • Click the expandable boxes to learn more about each route and station alternative. The alternatives are organized into two initial groups based on the technical analysis: those with more potential and those with greater challenges. 
  • View more details about each station area, including visualizations of the route and station alternatives. 
  • Provide feedback in the corresponding station area survey. Your feedback will help Sound Transit determine which alternatives to study in the Draft EIS. Current alternatives, including routes and station locations, may be refined following the comment period before inclusion in the EIS.
